One of my favorite passages in my bible. Jesus feeding the five thousand with nothing more than 2 fish, and 5 loaves of bread. And when the disciples cleaned up the leftovers, they filled 12 baskets! I was reading this passage last week, and the quilt idea popped into my head, just like that. A whole picture of it.
This passage reminds me that my Lord will provide, and provide abundantly...and now my quilt hangs on my wall to remind me too.
I used more scraps for this little quilt, it finishes at 22 inches square, so not MANY scraps, lol. I started to blanket stitch with my Viking, but it pooped out on me and I ended up doing it by hand. Maria, my little Featherweight, came to my rescue for all the piecing and putting the binding on. I used the walking foot on her for the first time, and it works wonderfully! I do love my little workhorse.
So, Loaves and Fishes is up in my craftsy shop now, if you'd like your own reminder of the Lord's provision - just click here > Allie-oops Designs or on the link on my sidebar.
By the way - this is my first time doing diagonally striped bias binding - oh how fun. I followed a tutorial from The Quilt Rambler, and held my breath until it turned out perfectly! Click on her blog name to see it, it's great.
Now to get to work on those other patterns....it's Wednesday already! For those of you who pray, could you please say one or two for my mum? She had an extensive stress test last week, and they found a blocked vein - she's on new meds now, and we're not sure what else they're going to do. I know she'll appreciate the prayers too.
See you soon....
